MOSCOW, July 5 (Itar-Tass) - One of the flight data recorders has been found at the site of a Mi-8 helicopter crash in Yakutia, a representative from the East Siberian transport investigation department of the Russian Investigative Committee told Tass.
It has been handed over to specialists from the Interstate Aviation Committee.
The Mi-8 helicopter flew from the Deputatskiy settlement to the Kazachye village. There were three crewmen and 25 passengers onboard, including 11 children. According to preliminary information, provided by Anatoly Skrybykin, the vice-chairman of the Yakutian government, on Wednesday, the helicopter collided with a strong air flow as it had crossed a mountain pass. However, a law enforcement source said that the pilot could have lost control of the helicopter because of descending air flows.
